I'm very pleased to announce that my portrait of Marina Dieul, Art Makes Life, was selected for inclusion in the 75th Midyear Exhibition at the Butler Institute of American Art.
If you haven't been to the Butler, it's worth a trip to Youngstown, Ohio to see this small gem of a museum full of truly magnificent examples of work by American artists of all eras of this country's history. The Midyear show is a lot of fun to see. There will be 100 works on display, selected from over 1,000 entries. You might see some artists you know there. Last year at the opening reception I met Jeff Gola, Stanka Kordic and Leslie Adams, all of whom had work in the show.
